Last night was so amazing. Bry did an awesome job at surprising me with the entire night! First we dropped dinner off to my friend who just had her second set of twins and got to hold her adorable boys! Man, that totally didn't help the baby cravings for sure! :)

After we went and grabbed dinner at My Big Fat Greek Restaurant. This is where having lap band is AWESOME! We shared a plate and came home with like 2 more meals of left overs! At dinner it was so nice having a conversation with Bry about what ever I wanted with out getting interrupted.

After dinner Bry headed on the 60 going East until it ended. He got off the road and starting driving toward the mountain. He finally stopped and pulled over to tell me we were going to watch a movie under the stars! How romantic is that? First we decided to go get drinks then we went back and watched a movie and nuggled under the stars.

I am so amazed by my sweet hubby. I was so proud of him putting all that effort in to make sure we had a romantic night. Thank you so much love for being amazing! I love you!!

Simply Amazing

When I close my eyes and dream
I see you, my everything!
Each day I wake amazed
Seeing you lying there beside me
I never want to leave

Each day I have my ups and downs
Some days I'm happy, some days I'm not
But everyday you are always there
Telling me you love me
No matter what may be

You are the rock of our family
The mom our kids always needed
We are eternal, bound as one
Each day we live amazed, by you

I was tossed around lost in the storms
My life a whirlwind thrown aside
I didn't know who to trust, to believe
You came, loved, and rescued me

You are my best friend
You are my everything
I love you eternally
You are......

Simply Amazing!

Love you baby doll! I would be lost with out you, and you are what makes our family a family, life worth living, and each day a little better. I love you!

Happy Anniversary!


Happy 2nd Anniversary!!

I think every little girl dreams of her wedding day. The beautiful white dress, the pretty flowers, the handsome hubby waiting there to say "I do"... rarely do we grow up and get the fairytale. 2 years ago today I got my fairytale. Our wedding was small, less than 50 people, but it was everything I wanted and so much more. I felt so beautiful and so loved that day. It was literally perfect.

I'm so glad that I met Bry and that I was in the right place in my life to realize what a good thing. He is my best friend, my love, my companion, my everything. I thank my Heavenly Father every day that I was blessed with such an amazing eternal companion!

Bry, I know this year is a lot different for us because we didn't get to go on a sweet vacation. As much as I miss that time we usually get to spend together it truly doesn't matter where we are or what we're doing as long as you're by my side. I love you! I know the first year was hard and I know that we've had our moments but I also feel closer to you now than ever. Thank you for having faith in me and for loving me unconditionally. I love you the most, I wind! :)

2 Month Pics!

Sunday before Church

Saturday before game night

A day after my 2 month mark and I'm sooo pleased to announce that I am just a few pounds away from my 50 lbs loss! As of this morning I've lost 47lbs! I am really pleased with my progress! Here are some pics from over the weekend. I'm still not seeing the weight loss, but maybe soon!

2 Months Down!

Yesterday I went in for my second fill. Last month I got a 3cc fill and this month I got 1 1/2ccs in my 10cc band. We're just a few days shy of my 2 month mark and I was so nervous to go in and see what my results were! I've lost 42lbs so far! Not too bad, huh? I think the thing that was hard was that I've been working my butt of exercising and watching what I eat and the Dr kind of got on me about it. You see, I've been a little obsessed and was eating about 800-900 calories a day and then with my exercising I was burning roughly 200 cal/day. Apparently my Dr believes that I've put my body into starvation mode and that's why I hadn't lost more this past month. I do want to say my Dr is more than pleased with my results, but I was not so that is why we had this conversation. So he's told me for this month to try and eat 1200 cal/day and then exercise and see how it goes.
I know this is a process and I'm at the beginning of my journey. I'm a woman though, I want immediate results! lol. I'm starting to see a little that I'm losing weight but it's more like I can tell in my clothes that they are too big or I'm fitting in clothes that I haven't worn in years. It's a nice feeling, let me tell you!
**I'm still in my clothes from walking this morning and look like junk or else I'd take a pic for you, but I promise I'll post a pic after I shower and look like a normal girl again! :)

Taylor snagged a bone but she was so cute I let
her keep it!

Giovanni and Natali teaching Taylor to ride
a bike. Just what every dog needs! :)

Look how huge Sophie looks compared to
Taylor. I never thought Sophie was big before!

Look at that tounge! Too cute! When she drinks
her ears get in her bowl. She is sooo adorable!

The kids and Taylor

For the last few weeks we've all been in great anticipation for Taylor. She is an 8 week old purebred Basset Hound and she is dang adorable!
We got her last night and are loving her soo much!! Even Sophie is enjoying having a new friend to mother! Sophie enjoys trying to pick her up by the scruff of her neck, she also enjoys shoving Taylor away with her booty, and she also likes to take her two front paws and move Taylor. It's cute. And Taylor is a good sport! They play well together and the kids are so happy to have another puppy around! Even Bryant admitted last night that she was really cute and then came down and played with her a bit before leaving for work this morning!
We're so excited to have Taylor in our family!!

What's For Dinner?

This is a question that I hear from my kids almost every night. My bff also asks me this pretty regularly, too! ;) But it's a question that's getting harder and harder for me to answer. My friend started a cooking blog but it seems no one is blogging anymore. I've looked at other cooking blogs and tried some recipes but I'm running out of creative juices! So, my blogging buddies, tell me... what are YOU cooking for dinner? Or where do you go to find different dinner ideas? (I like to make the hubby think I'm super creative and don't just make chicken and rice with green beans every night!)
Don't be shy... tell me what you're cookin'!!
